Will We Ever Know the Truth about the Balakot Air Strike?

Interview with D. Raghunandan |
Interviewed by Prabir Purkayastha
Produced by Newsclick Team,
The Government of Pakistan has said that the damage is being overplayed by the Indian side.

Nobody knows the reality of the Balakot Air Strike. While the Indian Air Force is saying that our work is to attack the target, not to know how much damage is done, there is a lot of speculation from the media. The ruling party in India, on the other hand, is claiming that 200 to 300 terrorists have been killed. The Government of Pakistan has prevented any media organisation from visiting the site of the strike, and has said that the damage is being overplayed by the Indian side. What really happened remains unknown. In this interview, Prabir Purkayastha and D Raghunandan discuss the ramifications of the satellite images of the strike that have cropped up from various sources, and the fog of war that still looms large over India and Pakistan.
